it was sunny and hot stock to drop. oh really about ten feet down. never ending legacy. ip. ukraine a country deeply divided and spiraling towards disaster russia's decision to deploy troops to protect its interests and citizens of the country has been met with language not heard since the cold war. in the meantime washington says the legal government and yet it's legitimate. well the aisle. i don't. more guesses why you'll find out what's really happening to the global economy for a no holds barred look of the global financial headlines today too the report largely. do. roos do they. do they. father i meet a couple jill and john daly. they plan to retire they went to the beat thailand among many many places they say well this is the place. i'm very end. it's about to have candles lit and all around. here are all winter they each can all be looking to build on or what's in those doubts. st also missing something. well this was something. and about two to having a social formation this experience eight so that's why tyler. the case of jail. what happened to her she was rescued dogs and you get
in different countries at the same time both condemning lost power over its actions against ukraine now in washington as an obama urged russia to de escalate the situation in ukraine insisting that moscow's explanation for its military response to the crisis. does it reflect real advance on the ground. something seems to have a different set lawyers may get a set of interpretations but of. i don't think that's pulling anybody in the meantime in kyiv by secretary of state john kerry was talking deafening and write me rush out simultaneously during the fifteen minute news conference mr kerry use words like of grass or provocation and intimidation to describe but lost out when talking about ukraine's internal leaders he had nothing but praise by using words like high aspirations hope and democracy week and then the russian federation's act of aggression. the russian god. out of excuses. friday instead of udon. false oaths intimidation. and provocations. us officials i also did i announced that the us will involve one billion dollars in duty to ukraine. i am helping hide the country gets ba
there is no argument about a free and fair election in ukraine. we also need to help this country that's going through some extremely difficult economic times. a recent article i read suggested ukraine needs our assistance way beyond the $1 billion which secretary kerry has talked about in his visit. but in order to achieve that, they're going to have to make some significant and maybe unpopular reforms in their economy, in their gas program and the like. it's tricky. to do that runs the risk of a popular backlash against these reforms but without the reforms, there could be no meaningful aid package. we need to stand with ukraine and ukraine needs to stand for the reforms necessary to strengthen their economy. this week i'm working with senators brown, shaheen, wicker, king, collins and warren warner to condemn the russian action in crimea. there's more to be done. senator menendez talked -- the aid and the sanctions that may be necessary. i sincerely hope the sanctions won't be necessary. i hope vladimir putin and the russians understand they cannot show this kind of aggression toward crimea without
of countries like georgia and ukraine towards the west and freeze them in the middle so he can continue to what the kind of pressure and in some sense a black male to try to -- blackmail them to try to move them to the east customs, toward the security structure, and really reconstitute a sort of latter day russian empire. i think that is what this is all about. >> come back to the question of georgia. is option of georgia and nato membership still in play? >> i would tell you that one of the things that needs to be done very promptly is to show to the world, particularly to the countries in europe, that the door is still open to these institutions. i think montenegro ought to be made a member of nato. georgia ought to be given a membership that would with them -- put them with nato membership. we should reaffirm what was said in 2008 that nato believes if ukraine wants, should become a part of nato. the eu should reopen negotiation agrees with georgia, ukraine, make clear that they meet the criteria and can be part of europe. that would send a strong signal to these countries, but also by movi
orientation of their neighboring countries, so in plain english, the [ inaudible ] ukraine is a geopolitical nightmare for the kremlin. >> how so? >> [ inaudible ] basically security, so have nato there, and pro-western ukraine with no links to russia. and from the russian perspective ukraine is not just another neighboring country, ukraine is considered to be which many russian nationalists [ inaudible ] of the russian history, russian culture, but there is something else there, and it has to do with kosovo, and the intervention in kosovo. >> can i ask you just to put a theory to you. could putin's aggression in any way be perhaps linked to his own fear that the peaceful protest movement that has happened in ukraine could happen in russia as well? and that's why he is acting this aggressively? >> yeah, there are two levels of analysis there, the first have to do with domestic developments in russia, and you remember what happened in 2012 when putin was reelected, there were some serious protests against putin. and also this has to do with kosovo. kosovo -- what happened in kosovo in 1999, w
of all, he doesn't want all of the economic problems of those countries. ukraine is an economic basket case. so are some of the other states in the near abroad. so what he wants is political influence, he wants these countries to look to russia for guidance on what to do on the international environment, and he also wants to re-create or create some kind of an economic union, but he certainly doesn't want responsibility for internal problems that a lot of these countries have, especially their economic problems. >> so even though he said the worst thing that happened in the history of the 20th century was the collapse of the soviet union, you believe that if he thought he could re-create the soviet union, he would want to because of all the problems that would go with that, especially economic? >> he just wants those countries of the near abroad, most of all ukraine looking to russia and as part of an arrangement with russia, not part of the arrangement with the west. he wants to avoid them establishing stronger linkages with the west and he wants them to have much stronger linkages wi
? is this beautiful and large country called ukraine. suppose ukraine finally after failing in 2004 get it right -- democracy, gets rid of corruption, the economy is improving, and it is there of the border for russia. i think it makes him nervous if there were a success in ukraine in bringing about a free and open society and economic success, which is not the case in russia. if the sanctions fail? what do you do it the pressure with his he continues own ambitious ideas of expanding within his own borders and spears of influence? >> go back to georgia in nato. if you tried something like that ay with one area that has significant russian popularity -- population, he would be attacking nato. that would be an entirely different set of circumstances. i have no illusions that in the short term, we will be able to ambitions.tin's in the long term, we can curb those ambitions in many ways, but we are becoming more energy independent. the only thing that is putin happening up mr. putin's is his energy resources -- john thing that is -- the only thing that -- isting up mr. putin's his energy resources.

to ask the community world democracies to provide immediate financial help to the country of ukraine, and i'd like to report that the united states has committed $1 billion and the european union has committed, as of news reports today, another $15 billion. this is critical in the need to help them get their economy back strong after the incidences of the last couple months. but it is unlikely that russia will pull back from the cry mia. rime minister putin -- crimea. prime minister putin said they can't control these self-defense forces. who are they kidding? russian soldiers with no unit identification does not qualify them as self-defense forces. if the world stands by and let's this happen it will be like chamberlain in the sudan land, russia continues to gobble up sovereign state. i want to applaud the ukrainian commander who was the only calm when he e peninsula, marched his soldiers to the airbase to continue the job that they do in securing and fixing the facilities. it was a tough standoff, but the colonel was astonished by the change of events in that the -- in that he's ha
of ukraine. but the countries that came to paris today for this very important and timely meeting are all of us bound together by very strong commitment to lebanon. as syria's conflict spills over lebanon's borders, and as the refugee crisis grows, we are deeply concerned for the security and the sovereignty of the people of lebanon and for their simple ability to be able to chart their own futures and fulfill the same basic aspirations that they share with everybody else on this planet. the president pulled out and showed a dramatic charting that goes for the last few years. four different charts that show the extraordinary change in lebanon, the numbers of refugees, as every year upwards, the entire country has become a splotch of red instead. instead of red dots, the entire border is really red today because there are almost a million refugees in lebanon. this has an extraordinary impact on the internal dynamics of a country. people who are looking for work, people who work for less, it drives wages down. changes the nature of that nation. so the united states is very proud to have pro
. russia maintains that ukraine's ousted president is the country's true leader. before meeting with kerry, lavrov repeated the assertion that vladimir putin made yesterday, that the troops in ukraine's crimean peninsula are not actually russians at all but instead members of local self-defense groups. that came as a surprise to many people with eyes and/or ears because they sure look like russian troops firing warning shots at hundreds of ukrainian soldiers attempting to reenter an air base on crimea that the russians have seized. so far this is the only known instance of shots fired between the two groups, but there are forces such as these in the streets of crimea's regional capital patrolling with no identification. today the administration said that the u.s. cannot yet prove that these forces are russian. >> it's pretty clear that they're russian troops. >> i think it's clear, but general dempsey, what evidence do we have. we don't have any evidence as yet. i think evidence could likely become available over time. >> just as an fyi, several of those troops have told reporters that the

conference scolding the u.s. for interfering in ukraine and said his country was on a humanitarian mission to protect russians in crimea, vowing that any use of force by russia would be a last resort. president obama responded saying putin's rationale was not fooling anybody, and he bristled as suggestions that the russians were doing a shrewd power grab. >> the way that some of this has been reported, that there is a suggestion somehow that the russian actions have been clever strategyically, i think this has not been a sign of strength but rather is a reflection that countries near russia have deep concerns and suspicions about this kind of meddling. >> tensions remain high in crimea where russian troops block aid despite putin's denial that they are russian forces, describing them at local defense forces. for more on what's going on in ukraine we are joined by aljazeera correspondent nick shiffrin in ukraine. nick, good to have you on the show. tensions are still very high there. we just showed the dramatic incident where ukrainian troops approached russians and were met with warning sh
term survive, if i can put it that way, of his country. >> chris, what do you think? >> ukraine specifically one of the headlines said u.s. guarantees worthless, because they felt the u.s. has been in effectual in what's happened there. >> that's been kind of a refrain before this. there's this constant mantra saying this because president obama doesn't leap at a chance to go to war he's therefore weak. the administration is having a tough time fighting this. the presidents kind of rummative. the public wants to say here's a decision, here's how it happens. that's a political problem for him. in terms of the way the russians are going to act in syria and with regard to iran, if you listen to the press conference that putin gave this morning, there's actually room to believe he might start a charm offensive. he was asked do you want to remove your ambassador from washington, he inside, i don't think that would be a good idea. he talked about cooperation is hard to build, you don't want to throw these things away. i think we could see a tomorrow offensive now by putin saying look,
. with the same thing happening in russia as is happening ukraine? i think russia is a country, as many countries where foreign-policy is determined by domestic pressure. what happened 10 days ago in ukraine was a major reverse for russian foreign-policy. in many ways, many would've thought the humiliation. i think there are many explanations for why russia chose to do the actions they did. one of them was try to alleviate that humiliation. nothing less than a land grab and the biggest strategic shock on the continent for decades if putin gets away with this, more trouble will follow in central and eastern europe. agree the west needs to unify around the much more robust response that we have seen so far and that in support of it, the u.k. should emigrate -- demonstrate it is actively considering all forms of economic sanctions? >> >> and we are actively considering a wide range of options here. i have not rolled any option now. i'm sure you noticed in these questions. i think the response that we have made so far is correct. we have emphasized the need for new diplomatic openings as well as for
countries to essentially butt out and stay out of the situation and of the intervention in ukraine or it will cost them if sanctions are imposed. they are willing to seize assets here in kiev. a former bureau chief for cnn also with the school of government. she is a fellow there. what do you make of the diplomatic efforts that have been under way? >> i think it's extreme. if they say they will seize assets, they happen right at the beginning of the end of the soviet union, that's really a red flag any company that would want to invest. >> they are doing business in russia. >> what are does it mean for investment in russia? doesn't that backfire? >> in terms of the diplomatic front, trying to find an off-ramp for russia. the main part is the rights and the fears of the people in the east and russian speakers want the protection of russia and they are fearful that the government in place right now is extreme in their view and will at the very least impact their rights and maybe even do things. >> also about the concerns of vladimir putin. >> you have to say that his fears of losing
meeting the first between the two countries since russia september troops to crimea. ukraine offered little assurance of a peaceful solution. a meeting two the two country's defence ministers on tuesday epded in a stalemate, one said "we have no sign of hope." >> lisa stark joins us from washington in a moment. but jennifer glasse is in the crimea city of sevastopol. good morning. we heard from foreign minister sergei lavrov before the meeting with kerry. what did he have to say? >> good morning, sergei lavrov speaking in madrid making clear the russian position is far from the american position. moscow believes president viktor yanukovych was ousted illegally. that moscow was forced to act because what happened in kiev could be contagious, criticising the west for supporting the new government in kiev, criticising what sergei lavrov called protesters acting against the ukrainian constitution and russia can't do anything about ordering forces back to bases because they are self-defence forces. that is a critical point. there are thousands of troops across the peninsula blockading bas
to the ukraine. that could disrupt supplies to countries from as far north as finland all the way down to the mediterranean. many countries, particularly in the eastern europe, get faster amounts of fuel and energy from russia. this is a very complicated spider's web financially. >> what's being discussed are sanctions. christine romans, what kind of effect can this have on russia. >> russia sells all the gas and oil. it gets paid. if they are going to have some sort of dispute on aland gas with europe or is going to shut off oil and gas again to ukraine, it hurts itself. >> it does. you would have thought so. but, there are plenty of other places in the world where they can sell that. look down towards the east. look down towards southeast asia. and, don't forget, if there is disruption in the oil market, what happens to the price. >> it goes up. >> who gains if it goes up. >> russia. if you are a seller. >> the imaginations and permations, sanctions, the u.s. is fot wanting to shut russia out, for good cause. they are big players in the london financial markets. sanctions is always a
start expanding the exports of oil and gas. we want to reduce the independence of countries like ukraine on russia. you have got to play this for the long haul which means to weaken the ability of russia to intimidate any of its neighbors including ukraine. martha: what do you think led to this moment. you are basically, it sound to me, correct me if i'm wrong. you are saying crimea is gone and you are not the first person who said that to us on this program. that situation may be over. how did we get caught so off guard and allow that to happen. >> i'm not sure it, gone. i think we have to prepare ourselves for that possibility. i'm hoping the sanctions and diplomatic process might mean the russians do withdraw. but i think we have to be -- we have to be realistic. part of the reason we are here is geography. the russians have certain advantages. they have bigger stakes there sanity's because of what happened in kiev the last couple months. this choice if you will between how ukraine was going to orient itself toward europe or russia when it looked like the majority of the people in kie
of the cold war poland and ukraine copper precise country for less had about the same or capital gdp. the ukraine was slightly ahead at that point and a poland is three times richer per person. it's just to underscore the gravity of this economic stagnation that's been ongoing in ukraine for so long. i don't have a good answer on how to fix it but i would use this argument as one more tool against putin when he tries to claim that yanukovych is the legitimate president of ukraine. by some legalistic interpretation, sure, you could force that argument down peoples throats. but the point is that yanukovych had lost its legitimacy because of economic mismanagement. what we need now is to great a process that's inclusive enough that ethnic russians feel part of come and serious enough that all ukrainians can feel like to have a greater hope in whatever political system is created either next round of elections, and i don't know how that's supposed to happen, but that's the combined project we should be working with all ukrainians, including ethnic russian ukrainians, and with putin on. a
are looking at natural gas but one of those stories that has come out with regard to natural gas in ukraine is this country could become a very successful exporter of natural gas. i traders talking about that possibility and whether or not that happened this year? >> talking about america exported more ukraine? cheryl: america, us, the u.s.. we are too dependent, getting 40% of the crew from overseas countries. enough. we could actually do it ourselves. >> we are exporting natural gas and i bet that will increase exponentially over the next five years. we have plenty of natural gas here. the price will go higher because people pay a lot higher for natural gas then we do. whatever money they are going to continue to do that you will see more natural gas go to europe as the years go by. cheryl: everyone that has been holed up on the east coast where they get out and drive around and see the outside for once, $4.55. thank you for participating in the floor show today. we will see how things shake out for the markets, we have 49 minutes to go. until the closing bell rings, billionaire carl icah
counterpart, sergey lavrov. both are in paris with talks to resolve the standoff in ukraine. until then, some comments from the senate floor in the russian intervention in that country. this is from yesterday will show you as much as we can until secretary kerry gets underway. >> i wanted to come to the floor today and talk about the ongoing crisis in ukraine. i am glad senator mccain on the floor today because it is hard to describe the sensation that ot and i felt at the end of last year when we got the chance to travel to the mad dog square in kiev and talk to people. it is hard to describe a group of people yelling back to you in unison. thank you, u.s.a. thank you, u.s.a. but that was the reality we were able to experience. it is im know that senator mccain and i did not go to advocate for president yanukovich's removal, even though the process resulted in that fact. in actuait fact. in actuality, we spent two hours that night meeting with yanukovich, pleading with him to abandon plans to join the e.u. so he could when asked to support of the hundreds of thousands of people who gathered
to send technical advisor if ukraine to get the country's economy back on track. meanwhile in russia and the defence ministry confirmed that it successfully test fired an intercontinental ballistic missile tuesday. although the council's planned before the current crisis in ukraine and the us was notified before hand. after the undercurrent of tensions between russia and the west honey can. i don't use. and for its first case on a fast changing events in ukraine in the er joined in the studio by professor owen mention how the department of ukrainian studies at humboldt university for four and studies the welcome to the program proved to be here well professor let's start with the root of the crisis why is russia so keen on innit tightening its grip over ukraine and it isn't something that putin had been planning for a while why restrict the amount of crap do you know i know we should remember it and carries them russia's black sea fleet their input is not willing to leave that topic and to eye russia does not have a very favorable extra oceans still on the bricks the fleet is really
in the standoff in ukraine than russians who live in america and come from that part of the country. so we went to a jersey town and found people willing to share with us what they thought. local residents have deep ties to russia and ukraine. but many won't discuss the russia and ukraine crisis, and those who do choose their words carefully. this man once lived in ukraine. >> this is not good for russia and for ukraine. it's not good situation. >> should russia have troops in ukraine? >> i don't know. >> this manmade clear the side that he's on. >> what should putin do? >> i don't know, not good. >> this community in northern new jersey has one of the highest percentages of russian descents. more than 10%. the giftshops and the travel agencies cater to their needs, but these days, the daily routine keeps track of the standoff in their ancestral homeland, watching the intense waiting game between the ukrainian and russian armed forces. hoping that the world super powers keep it from escalating. he had advice for president obama. >> he must wait. patience, patience. >> president obama should h
